Punto System transports to Panama City

Punto System, PCN Members from Italy, recently transported a huge dismantled crawled drilling rig door-to-door from Ottawa to Panama City, via Baltimore port, under temporary export/temporary import customs status.

The main unit of the rig weighed 54 tons (16 x 3 x 3.3 m) and it was shipped as one special transport and 3 trucks full of the machine’s accessories.

Punto System faced challenges during this shipment, including the coordination of the machine’s arrival at the port when the permits were expiring, and continued postponement of the ship’s arrival.

“Thanks to the great teamwork between Punto System and PCN Member Thunderbolt, we succeeded in delivering the machine on the first day of the acceptance slot with the road transit permits expiring the same day, whilst the 3 trucks were transported some days later.”
